I recently read "Sun Tzu, the Art of War,"- it was, how you say, off the hook dude! "Sun Tzu, the Art of War" was written more than 2,400 years ago by the chinese military mastermind Sun Tzu.

Still the preeminent treatise on command in my fervent opinion. No frills, no exhaustive research or historical accounts to sift through in order to draw out examples of command. This is certainly more a book of philosophy. Its maxims ring powerfully true in connection with grand strategy and tactics of war in the decisions a commander makes. The great captains throughout history have come to prove Sun Tzu's theorems, that war is not a science but is an art.

The book is a translation of a book written in the fifth century on arms and fighting by the Chinese General Sun Tzu. The text gives the reader a look into the battlefield strategy and wisdom of Chinese warriors. The book is still read in military colleges. A very interesting read.
